This photo was taken primarily for a challenge – glass containers which must be empty. I haven’t played with glass in quite a while now so, when I saw this challenge, I decided to see what I could come up with.

I have oodles of glass vases but deciding which one/s to use wasn’t easy – I like them all. I ended up deciding to use two. Then deciding how to set it up and how to shoot it. Decisions, decisions! All up, I ended up spending about 3 hours getting this shot – an eternity for me. Lol, patience is not one of my talents. :-(

I took lots of test shots trying various f/stops and shutter speeds. I wanted the deep rich blue to stand out against the white backing while still allowing the transparent snifter to show clearly. It was a very gloomy day so the white was looking gray in just about every photo.

I finally settled on this one; the only change I made was using Curves to increase the whiteness and emphasise the blue. I was lucky that this, the last photo I took, I liked as my batteries went flat less than a second after I took it!

Many thanks for looking – I hope you like it. All comments are much appreciated.

    nice one jan simple but great colour in the vase

  • Many thanks for your lovely comment, Mr Joak. The funny thing is the blue vase came in a box of goodies I bought at a clearance auction. I only wanted one thing in the box but had to take the lot. I nearly threw it out! I’m glad I didn’t coz I’ve used it in quite a vew photos, lol.

    Oh, wow! I really like this, Jan! It’s beautiful AND it makes me want to peek farther into the view, around the corner, into the depths…to see more.

  • I love how you see this, Robin . . . I won’t tell you what was around the corner, I’ll leave it to your imagination, but I will tell you that Misty wasn’t there! I actually got this one without her “assistance”. As always, your compliments are a pleasure to read and make me smile, they brighten my day a lot. The fave is appreciated. :-)) Have a wonderful day/evening in your part of the world.
